About the Author
Born in Zurich, Switzerland in 1959, photographer Lukas Felzmann's work has been exhibited at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art, the Stanford Museum of Art, Kunsthaus Zürich, and the MuseT de l'ElyseT, Lausanne, Switzerland, amongst other venues. He is the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in Photography. Felzmann lives and works in San Francisco.
Roads that peter out in the middle of nowhere, buildings that no longer make sense, flotsam and jetsam that defy oblivion: Lukas Felzmann's scenery and objects quietly and unobtrusively open up their profound symbolism in the field of tension between desire and memory, hope and pain, dream and reality. Together they form a narrative that follows its own rules, subtly carrying the viewer along on a strange journey, where broad landscapes and deep horizons become expanses onto which visions of all kinds can be projected. Uncompromisingly printed in a small format deliberately set apart from the typical coffee-table picture book, Landfall is like a literary work, an existential analysis of the truths and illusions of our civilization, or a piece of poetry full of surprising encounters, whose ambivalence requires repeated reading.
